If the Asus (single slot, passive) Xe GPU is the same one, and at the same clocks as in the Colorful card... what absolute nutjob thought a dual-slot, dual-fan solution was necessary?!
Probably a cheap attempt to make it look like a real Graphicscard rather than the shitty little GeForce 710 style display adapter it really is.
Yeah, I'd be curious to know how this compares to GT710 and the newly announced GT1010 (which is 2/3 of a proper GDDR5 GT1030)
To be fair, it should wallop the 710 at least in terms of media encoding / decoding due to (assumed) better support for modern standards.
What is very weird though is that apparently Intel will lock those display adapters to specific budget chipsets because "reasons":
And then there is even more confusion about what the point of it all is... because Intel is said to launch two new generations of desktop CPUs in 2021 (Rocket Lake S in Spring and Alder Lake S in Autumn), presumably those will come with a beefed up igpu anyway and just render this miniscule card obsolete?
